Jürgen Klopp believes Liverpool’s participation in this summer’s Audi Cup will help him understand exactly how his team is shaping up ahead of the 2017-18 season.
And Klopp believes taking on such illustrious opposition will give him a good idea of how ready his players are for a new Premier League campaign.
He told reporters: “The tournament is 12-13 days before the season starts and therefore it has a very high relevance sports-wise.
“We will [have been] in training for more than a month and then we want to find out where we stand and, of course, you can only find out where you are if you play the best teams.
